It seems that the last piece will be cut off on the eighth day, as 16:2=8. But in fact the last piece is cut off on the seventh day. On the second day the cloth piece is 14 m.; on the seventh day it is 4 m.; therefore, the last 2 m. are cut off on the seventh day but not on the eighth when only 2 m. of cloth is left.
